Texas MZ3

For an automotive enthusiast, a car is but a canvas to the imagination of the enthusiast. Imagination is a powerful tool that helps transform dreams and ideas into reality. Such imagination and dreams were brewing in Nate King’s mind when he transformed his 2010 Black Mica Pearl Mazda 3 sport hatchback from Dallas, Texas into something of his own.

Nate has always been influenced by the cars he grew up with to create his own dreams and imagination of what kinds of cars to own, what he wants it to drive like, race them, and build them from the ground up.

Enjoying his surroundings at local events to see how many cool ideas, and how much hard work other people put into their own cars; helping motivate him with his own car.

Ever since he got hooked on Mazdas with their body styles, reliability, and endless ways to customize them. He finally found a car that can become the canvas.

Nate decided to lower his Mazda 3 2.5L hatchback on BC Racing coilovers with 326 Power 100mm 10k front and 12k rear springs.

With help in contrast and styling from his Candy Teal Brada BR5 in 18×10 front and 18×10.5 rear.

Frontal styling with real PU style front bumper lip.

Interior accented with zebra printed headboard, dash and door handles, and samurai sword shift knob.
